AJ McCarron named semifinalist for Davey O'Brien Award

Posted: Updated:

Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron is a semifinalist for the Davey O'Brien Award for the second consecutive year.

McCarron is one of five SEC quarterbacks on the semifinal list, which was narrowed from 124 to 16.

Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel won the O'Brien Award last year. He's a semifinalist again, as is Zach Mettenberger of LSU, Aaron Murray of Georgia and Connor Shaw of South Carolina.

Former Hueytown star Jameis Winston, who has helped Florida State get to 8-0 is on the O'Brien semifinal list.

McCarron has thrown for 1,862 yards, 16 touchdowns and three interceptions this season for top ranked Alabama. He needs 107 yards to become the school's all time leader in career passing yards.

The Tide host No. 10/12 LSU on Saturday. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Bryant Denny Stadium
